Nippon-Ham Fighters history
Since its existence in 1946, the Fighters have had many streaks of bad luck including very low rankings and many managerial changes. As if the lack of consistency weren’t bad enough, the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters had to live under the spotlight of the successful Yomiuri Giants as they shared the same home stadium until 2004. With management changes over the years, the Nippon-Ham Fighters suffered with official name changes more than eight times. Starting with the Senators in 1946, Tokyu Flyers in 1947, Kyuei Fliyers in 1948 and back to the Tokyu Flyers from 1949 the team seemed to have finally settled on a team and management. But in 1954, Toei Company became the new managers and thus changing the name yet again to the Toei Flyers which stayed as their official name for nineteen years. In 1973 there was a one year name change to Nittaka Home Flyers, and the following year Nippon-Ham, a meatpacking company, took over management and changed the club’s name to the Nippon-Ham Fighters. In 2004, the team made the decision to move to the island of Hokkaido where they now reside with the Sapporo Dome as their home field.
